GWDAW-8 Abstract: Quasi-local Energy of Gravitational Waves

Jong Hyuk Yoon · Konkuk University (Seoul, Korea)


A quasi-local expression of the gravitational energy carried by a generic gravitational wave is presented. This formula is obtained from the Einstein's equations for a generic spacetime studied in the (2,2)-splitting. The implication of this quasi-local energy formula for gravitational wave detectors is discussed.
